BOULDER, Colo. (AP) — A Colorado psychic is accused of swindling more than $200,000 out of a member of the family that founded the high-end Lacoste clothing company.

The Times-Call reports (http://bit.ly/1NBFSNd ) that 32-year-old Becky Ann Lee has been charged with felony theft in a scam against Victoria Lacoste, a student at the University of Colorado-Boulder.

Authorities say Lacoste started seeing Lee for Tarot card readings last year and eventually gave Lee more than $200,000, much of which Lee spent buying gold coins. She owns the Psychic Chakra Spa in Boulder.

Lee didn't respond when asked for comment last week at a court hearing, where she was charged. The phone number to the spa wasn't working, and its website has been taken down.

Lacoste declined to comment on the case.
